The author of the work herself acted as a screenwriter and will adapt the work for the screens. This isn’t the first film adaptation of the writer’s work.

The release date for the new series This Summer I Got Pretty will be June 17, 2022. It has 8 episodes, the director was appointed Gabrielle Stanton, who worked on the superhero series Flash.

The plot in the novelty is about a girl named Belly. Every summer with her mother, she would go to the country house with the heroine’s aunt Suzanne, who is the mother of two boys. Since childhood, the trio spent time at the lake, where they had fun and enjoyed their summers. But one day everyone grows up and their outlook on life, as well as people’s relationships, changes. This is what happens another summer when Belly comes to visit her aunt again. The girl sees that her brothers Conrad and Jeremy have changed from clumsy boys to slender and attractive guys, and Belly herself is no longer the corner girl she was last summer. What these changes will lead to will be revealed in Amazon’s novel, whose release date is June 17, 2022.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
Belly realizes that she is sympathetic to both boys, but she can’t choose one of the brothers. She tries not to let her feelings worry her, but three summers will force her to change her mind about the brothers and choose one of them. It will be a hard situation for the guys, too, because sometimes love is a harsh test, especially the first time in life. The author of the project notes that this is not just another story of first love, but a true story about tough choices, misguided expectations, betrayal, and brutal confrontation, when the fact of kinship is less important than feelings. Series Release Date This Summer I Was Pretty will be held on June 17, 2022.
The creators of the novelty do not distribute plans for the show, but given the fact that the original series consists of three novels, there is a chance that the project will be a long enough story to cover the events of all the books. The first season’s release date is set for June 17, 2022. The title role is starring young actress Lola Tan. The upcoming series is their first significant project for her.
